Do you own woodland property?
Do you share our enthusiasm for Maryland's natural lands?
Do you want to learn about the most up-to-date practices for wildlife habitat and woodland health?
Do you have the enthusiasm and drive to share what you know with your fellow woodland property owners?
Then consider applying for the Maryland Woodland Stewards program! This program, now in its 24th year, helps committed individuals to become effective stewards of their property and advocates for forest and habitat health through the principle of “Neighbor helping neighbor.” Through the generous support of the Maryland Tree Farm Committee, the University of Maryland Extension is able to offer this three-day, hands-on training for the low cost of $95.00 per person.
This year’s training takes place October 2-5; nominations and applications are now being accepted. The deadline for applications is August 4, but space is limited to 25 participants, so apply now.
